Bulls face big test against Heat - Chicago Bulls Blog - ESPN Chicago: "The Bulls center missed Wednesday's victory over the Orlando Magic with flu-like symptoms and is uncertain for Friday's game against the Miami Heat, who are dealing with their own injury issues. LeBron James missed practice on Thursday to receive treatment for his bruised right knee, but he expects to play on Friday.
As ESPN Stats and Information points out, Friday's matchup pits the two winningest teams in the Eastern Conference over the past three seasons against each other. The Bulls are 129-49 over the last three years in regular season play while the Heat are 126-52.
"They're the champs, man," Carlos Boozer said Wednesday. "Any time you get a chance to play the champs ... we get excited for every game, but they are the champs so we look forward to matchups like that. You get a chance to test how good your team is against the champs, so until somebody beats them that's what they are and we look forward to playing them." "
